<o> AMENPER: El Paso de Conga de los Desastres de Obama

Me tengo que tomar el trabajo de traducir el escrito de Bret Stephens hoy en el Journal.

Sólo traducir, no hay nada que añadir, Bret le da al clavo en la cabeza, es una radiografía de los desastres de Obama en política exterior

 

El Paso de los Desastres de Obama

Bergdahl una semana, después Ucranía.. Ahora Iraq. ¿Que pudiera ser lo próximo?

BRET STEPHENS 

¿No fue sólo hace 10 meses que el presidente Obama capituló en Siria? Y hace ocho meses que nos enteramos de que él no tenía idea de los EE.UU.había espiado a Angela Merkel? (se enteró por los periódicos) Y hace siete meses que su administración completó su desastroso acuerdo nuclear interino con Teherán? Y hace cuatro meses que Chuck Hagel anunció que el ejército de Estados Unidos se reduciría a los números no vistos desde la década de 1930? Y hace tres meses que Rusia se apoderó de Crimea? Y hace dos meses que el esfuerzo de paz entre israelíes y palestinos de John Kerry se esfumó en el vacío? ¿Y no fue el mes pasado que el Sr. Obama anunció un calendario para la retirada total de Afganistán-una estrategia cuyos efectos previsibles se puede ver ahora en Iraq?

Incluso el acuerdo Bergdahl de antesdeayer se está empezando a sentir como la historia antigua. Al igual que los gansos, los estadounidenses se ven obligados a tragar fiascos de la política exterior a un ritmo más rápido de lo que podemos masticar, y mucho menos de digerir. Considere que estasmos comiendo hígado todos los días..

El jueves, los tanques rusos rodaron a través de la frontera hacia el este de Ucrania. El sábado, los separatistas rusos derribaron un avión de transporte de Ucrania, asesinando a 49 personas. El lunes, Moscú dejó de suministrar gas a Kiev. Todo esto es parte de la invasión de sigilo permanente del Kremlin y la subyugación de su vecino. Y todo esto apenas en las noticias. John Kerry llamó a Moscú para expresar su “preocupación fuerte”.  Kerry está muy preocupado,  eso sí, no condena.

Si el presidente de los Estados Unidos tenía alguna idea sobre el tema, que los guardó para sí mismo. Su programa semanal de radio se dedicó a los papás que deseen de los Estados Unidos un día de padre feliz.

También la semana pasada, el Estado Islámico de Irak y Siria se apoderaron de Mosul. Entonces ISIS tomó Tikrit. Luego fue Tal Afar. Con ejecuciones en masa de chiítas en cada lugar. El gobierno está tomando su tiempo para decidir lo que, eventualmente, ayudar a que ofrecerá el gobierno en Bagdad. Pero está explorando la posibilidad de utilizar la angustia de Irak como una oportunidad para abrir vías de cooperación con Teherán.

Así que debido a que la administración tiene una objeción teológica a usar la fuerza militar en Irak para evitar que sea invadido por Al Qaeda o disolver en una guerra civil potencialmente genocida, resulta que ahora funcionará con Teherán, un estado patrocinador del terrorismo designado por 30 años y un régimen que continúa a armar a Hezbolá en el Líbano, la Yihad Islámica en Gaza y Bashar Assad en Siria, pero vamos a aliarnos a ellos para ayudar a “estabilizar” a Irak. Al menos que la Casa Blanca ha descartado la cooperación militar con Irán. Pero dale tiempo.

Aquí, entonces, es la cobardía que ahora pasa por la inteligencia en esta administración: ¿¿¿Hacer nos amigos con de régimen terrorista para lidiar con una organización terrorista.???? Entregar árabes chiítas de Irak en manos de sus correligionarios persas, quienes no pierden el tiempo girando el sur de Irak en una satrapía modelada del Líbano actual.

Se expresan con brusquedad con el primer ministro iraquí Nouri al-Maliki, quien, a pesar de sus deficiencias se manifiesta como un líder, sin embargo, quiere ser aliado-y obsequioso con un régimen iraní que pasó la mayor parte de la última década, matando a soldados estadounidenses. Alejarsa aún más de los aliados en pánico en Riad y Jerusalén para congraciarse con los mulás.

Entregan a los mullahs cierta ventaja estratégica adicional mientras se dirigen a la siguiente ronda de negociaciones nucleares (supuestamente finales).

“Estamos, me temo, a la deriva en un estado de semi-animación, como un río que avanza hacia una cascadalos.” Estas son  las palabras de Hugh Dalton, canciller de Clement Attlee , que describió el estado de Gran Bretaña en el invierno de 1947-

En aquel entonces, el Reino Unido había gastado una cuarta parte de su tesoro nacional la lucha contra la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Todavía estaba gastando el 19% de su PIB en su presupuesto militar. El invierno más frío en su historia había congelado las reservas de carbón del país, causando apagones de electricidad y había puesto dos millones de personas sin trabajo.

Los EE.UU. no se enfrenta exactamente a este tipo de crisis en la actualidad. Obama votó más dinero en su plan de estímulo en 2009 de lo que habíamos gastado hasta entonces en las guerras de Irak y Afganistán combinadas. El gasto en defensa en los EE.UU. asciende a un 4% del PIB. Nuestra economía es lenta, pero no se está desmoronando.

Sin embargo, cuando se trata de liderazgo, tenemos nuestro propio Clement Attlee en la parte superior, con ganas de restar el peso de la responsabilidad internacional para que pueda seguir adelante con la única cosa que realmente lo anima, que está construyendo la “justicia social” doméstica.. En realidad, la comparación es injusta para Attlee, que podía contar con un aliado poderoso (los Estados Unidos) para recoger Inglaterra cuando cayeron las riendas, para rescatar a Europa, para detener a los soviéticos. Pero nosotros tenemos que vivir bajo el método del señor Obama que es ignorar una crisis por el mayor tiempo posible, Mientras tanto nos entretiene con  un discurso, sobre imponer una sanción,   el tema del cambio climático o la desigualdad de ingresos.

El retiro de Estados Unidos no tiene por qué acabar en tragedia, e incluso la presidencia de Obama es un evento de supervivencia. Pero los errores estratégicos y desastres internacionales están acumulando a un ritmo insostenible. Esto es lo que el mundo post-americano realmente luce..

 

 

ANGEL CUERVO: El caso de Colombia… ¿DE COLOMBIA?…  Desgraciadamente, a mi me parece que los pueblos son imbeciles y después de haber pesado la situación de Colombia a mi me luce que los pueblos siguen creyendo que el comunismo es lo solución a la pobreza y que  el abuso es culpa de las clases pudientes que los creen culpables por ser millonarios y vivir bien. Si es posible que el sistema capitalista tenga algunas áreas grises pero en el comunismo  todas las áreas son negras.

 

Yo quisiera que todos mis amigos fueran poderosos y millonarios, algo me pudiera tocar y además al menos tengo alguien conocido para pedirle prestado si lo necesitase.  A un comunista no pudiera pedirle prestado pues todos están arrancados viviendo en la  miseria………entonces que????

 

Si son efectivamente,  no imbéciles   sino morones. Ahorita veremos los resultados, Castro ha logrado lo que quería y de paso que Venezuela se olvide de su libertad a menos que el pueblo se inmole en masa tirándose por los balcones  de sus magníficos condominios unos y otros envenenándose con mata ratas en áreas de la libertad.  AC.

 

“En mi opinión” Con todo el respeto  yo no creo que es el problema de Colombia…  Es el problema de Colombia, de Cuba, Venezuela, Perú, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Brasil, Mejico y por su puesto Estados Unidos de América que por primera vez y oficialmente han elegido un presidente comunista y no solo eso sino que lo han reelegido. Amigo mío “Esto de jodio” Lázaro R González Mino

 

 

 

AMENPER:The Standing to Sue Obama… LA PEOR EPIDEMIA DE “SARNA POLITICA EN ESTADOS UNIDOS” DE LA HISTORIA

Tengo que estar de acuerdo con este editorial de hoy del Wall Street Journal.  Soy conservador hasta la médula, creo que soy conservador de nacimiento, fui conservador en mi patria antes y después de Fidel.  El populismo socialista reinaba en Cuba a todos los estratos sociales. Por eso a Fidel lo financiaron los millonarios y las conspiraciones eran comunes en los clubes sociales de los ricos.

Pero siempre he sido pragmático además de ser conservador.   Si entre nosotros los conservadores tenemos diferencias, esta no es la hora para al discutir nuestras diferencias, Tenemos que luchar unidos contra el que realmente es nuestro enemigo, no tratar como un enemigo al que puede ser sino un aliado en potencia aunque discutimos nuestras diferencian entre nosotros.  Los trapos sucios se deben lavar en casa, no enseñárselos al verdadero enemigo.

Presentar una demanda a Obama por abuso de poder es algo que se “cae de la mata”, esto es lo que dice el artículo.  Y añade que necesitamos a los que están en posiciones de poder, con los que hemos tenido diferencias, pero que al final son de los nuestros.  Recuerdo que Roosevelt refiriéndose a Somoza dijo, “es un Hijo de Puta, pero es nuestro hijo de Puta”.  Creo que eso fue lo más inteligente que dijo Roosevelt en su vida.  No podemos dejar que discusiones vanas interfiera con el objetivo común, que es librar al país de la peor plaga que ha sufrido desde la epidemia de viruela en 1600

 

The Standing to Sue Obama

Members should let Boehner take the lead against executive excess.

June 15, 2014 5:48 p.m. ET

President Obama is setting a dangerous precedent by suspending his enforcement of laws on health care, immigration, drugs, banking and so much else, but the courts may soon be asked to throw a brushback pitch. That is, unless a rump group of backbenchers undermines the legal challenge.

Mr. Obama’s practice of unilaterally waiving his duty to faithfully execute statutes has been abetted by a presumed lack of legal “standing” to contest his suspension. To the extent individuals have not suffered concrete injuries that the courts traditionally redress, he feels he can act without consequence to create whole-cloth regulatory regimes. This makes the inherent Article I powers of Congress irrelevant, with perhaps permanent damage to the separation of powers and political accountability. If Mr. Obama gets away with it, the next President probably will too.

But Congress may yet have a way to challenge this usurpation in court. The Washington constitutional litigator David Rivkin and Florida International University law professor Elizabeth Price Foley have developed a legal theory that would allow for judicial review to resolve this dispute between the political branches on the merits. Members of Congress as individuals cannot sue as individuals over passing political disputes. But when the President is usurping core legislative powers, Congress as an institution can sue to vindicate this constitutional injury.

Short of impeachment, there is no other way for Congress to defend its rights, and the Rivkin-Foley case is narrow and limited—and should survive judicial scrutiny. The idea has secured the interest of the GOP leadership, which may soon authorize a House-led lawsuit.

The problem is that a handful of junior Members may move to pre-empt the House challenge with their own claim in a way that could undermine House leaders. As a legal matter, the formal imprimatur of Congress is important and serves as a limiting principle. Institutional challenges will be rare for only the gravest suspensions of law and keep sealed the Pandora’s box that would be the endless deluge of ad hoc political lawsuits against the White House.

Backbench fervor may also get the better of legal precision. The Rivkin-Foley theory would itself set a precedent and depends on careful arguments. Mr. Rivkin was the legal innovator behind the challenge to ObamaCare’s individual mandate and his ideas persuaded a majority of the Supreme Court, even if Chief Justice John Roberts ultimately got cold feet and called it a tax.

But that case was harmed in the lower courts—and in the court of public opinion—by sloppy reasoning from politically ambitious litigators. Rump litigation could interfere by casting doubt on this case too.

The courts have long turned back flailing suits from individual legislators, from attempts in the 1970s to police the conduct of the Vietnam war to more recent efforts by Dennis Kucinich and others over Iraq. But personal pique as much as conviction seems to be a motivation in this dispute. Some Members just don’t like Speaker John Boehner and prefer to sabotage him at every turn, even in this case when he would be doing a public service by hazarding his own reputation and office.

More judges are pushing back against Mr. Obama’s abuses when individuals with standing have sued, and the courts may be open to a larger challenge that resolves the dispute in a constitutionally peaceful way. But defending Congress’s prerogatives

 

 

Watch Senator EXPLODE On Obama: “Stubborn-Headed, Delusional, Detached”

Senator Lindsey Graham spoke his mind on CNN…

TOM HINCHEY — 

Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was on CNN’s State of the Union discussing the turmoil in Iraq, calling Obama a “stubborn-headed, delusional, detached president.” Graham accuses Obama of thinking he knows better than everybody else, and that the withdrawal of U.S. troops has exposed America to the inevitable.  “This is another 9/11 in the making” said Graham. “The FBI director has warned us in Congress that Syria and Iraq present a direct threat to our homeland.”  The Senator advised that Obama “get into the game” with air power to stop the march toward Baghdad, and to get a new government in place to bring the Iraqis back together for a counter offense.

AMENPER:¿Qué pasa en el medio oriente?

Osama Bin Ladin era Sunni, Sadam Hussein era Suni, el gobierno de Iran es Shias.

Nos dicen que Bush es el culpable de la desestabilización de Iraq porque no debía de haber derrocado el gobierno de Sadam Hussein.  Pero ahora los Sunnis de Sadam Hussein están recuperando a Iraq por el vacío dejado por los Estados Unidos al retirar las tropas. ¿que se le ocurre a Kerry?

Ahora Kerry nos dice que quizás llegue a un acuerdo con Irán….con Irán, para que nos ayude contra los Sunís.  Ahora Irán nuestro peor enemigo en el medio oriente será nuestro aliado.

Mientras tanto Israel, la única democracia en el medio oriente, es realmente la nación más criticada por esta administración.

Si Irán nos “ayuda” y ocupa a Iraq, ¿Qué podemos esperar? ¿Un fiel aliado?

La política de ayuda en ciertos momentos a Saddam Hussein se basaba en mantener un balance entre los shias y los sunís, evitar que Irán ocupara a Iraq y se convirtiera en una superpotencia en el medio oriente.

Cuando la política exterior de los Estados Unidos abandonó a Iraq, se sabía lo que iba a pasar.

Los que dicen que los Estados Unidos no tienen nada que hacer en el medio oriente, son los mismos que no quieren que se perfore petróleo en los Estados Unidos, y que no quieren que se construya en oleoducto de Keystone, lo cual nos deja a la merced de los países del medio oriente y Rusia para el necesario combustible.

Este balance en el medio oriente nunca será posible, la prueba de que no son los Estados Unidos los culpables de las guerras en las región no pueden ser más evidente que en estos momentos.

La única solución razonable hubiera sido que los Estados Unidos hubieran adquirido su independencia energética para no depender de nuestros enemigos.

Pero esta solución era muy fácil para que la izquierda lo aceptara. ¿Por qué? ¿Por ignorancia? ¿O por diseño?  Quizás es por diseño, el diseño de destruir la civilización occidental como la conocemos.

Israel desaparecerá del mapa del medio oriente, Rusia ocupará los territorios de la difunta Unión Soviética, los países del norte de África están ya en manos musulmanas incluyendo nuestro antiguo aliado Egipto, entonces ¡Apaga y vámonos!

El legado de esta administración quedará en la historia en un capítulo de infamia.

‘Chickens Come Home to Roost’ – Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Daughter Convicted on 11 Counts of Fraud Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, March 8, 2014, 7:54 PM 

Jeri Wright and Rev. Jeremiah Wright In September Jeri Wright, daughter of Reverend “God Damn America” Wright, and 12 other Democrats were charged with embezzling $16 million in Federal health grants that should have gone to AIDS charities and other programs for the poor and needy. 

More than one of the defendants had direct ties to President Barack Obama. On Friday Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s daughter was found guilty of eleven counts that included money laundering and lying to federal agents. Breitbart reported: On Friday, a federal jury took less than two hours to convict the daughter of President Barack Obama’s controversial former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, of fraud.  

Jeri Wright was found guilty of a fraud scheme that siphoned thousands of taxpayer dollars intended for a not-for-profit work and education program known as We Are Our Brother’s Keeper. Prosecutor Timothy Bass said Jeri Wright lied “over and over” and went on a “spending spree” that included traveling to Las Vegas, buying vehicles, and remodeling her basement with cash from the money laundering scheme. She was found guilty on all counts. “If you take and misuse government money, and then lie about it, you will be held accountable in a court of law,” said U.S. Attorney for the Central District of Illinois, Jim Lewis.

AMENPER: This excerpt of the book ‘The wealth of Nations” like the whole book, is more about the concept of market economy than roads and bridges The mention of bridges and roads is more like a metaphor, an allegory, to express the message that commerce and free enterprise is the motor that generates the wealth of a nation and the wellbeing of its citizens. That no wealthy nation can exist without market economy.  Even communist countries like China and Vietnam have learned to accept it.

We had bad politicians in our country, but we were blessed with exceptional entrepreneurs.  When we speak about the Cuba before Castro and its advances, we have to stop and think…Why? Was it because of our political system?

After thinking it over, we realize that it was not because of our political system before Fidel, but because of the ingenuity of our entrepreneurs in spite of our politicians.

Adam Smith on roads and bridges to nowhere.June 15, 2014 5:26 p.m. ET

From Adam Smith, “The Wealth of Nations” (1776), on roads and bridges to nowhere:

When high roads, bridges, canals, &c. are in this manner made and supported by the commerce which is carried on by means of them, they can be made only where that commerce requires them, and consequently where it is proper to make them. Their expences too, their grandeur and magnificence, must be suited to what that commerce can afford to pay. They must be made consequently as it is proper to make them.

A magnificent high road cannot be made through a desert country where there is little or no commerce, or merely because it happens to lead to the country villa of the intendant of the province, or to that of some great lord to whom the intendant finds it convenient to make his court.

A great bridge cannot be thrown over a river at a place where nobody passes, or merely to embellish the view from the windows of a neighbouring palace: things which sometimes happen in countries where works of this kind are carried on by any other revenue than that which they themselves are capable of affording

 

AMENPER: EL EXODO CORPORATIVO CON OBAMA…

Nunca me ha gustado ver cuando una corporación americana emigra al extranjero.  Pero tampoco puedo estar de acuerdo con los ataques virulentos que hacen a estos empresarios que buscan pastos más verdes. La honesta ambición es parte del sistema de libre mercado, es la fuerza que genera la economía y la riqueza de la nación,  siempre y cuando la ambición sea dentro de los cánones de la ley. 

El éxodo de compañías no se debe como simplistamente se dice solamente a que los empresarios quieran explotar a la mano de obra de esos países. Realmente cuando uno piensa en las dificultades para operar en el extranjero, la baja calidad de la mano de obra, y el transporte del producto de nuevo a Estados Unidos, no creo que nadie que pueda tener la oportunidad de operar su negocio desde este país, pueda pensar en mudar sus operaciones al extranjero.   El problema gravita sobre los crecientes impuestos corporativos en los Estados Unidos.  Los impuestos en las corporaciones son los que pasan desapercibidos y los políticos no sufren cuando los imponen porque al público no le preocupan.  Debieran preocuparles, los impuestos corporativos se revierten en subida de precios al consumidor y la emigración de trabajos al extranjero.   Esto es lo que nos explica el editorial de hoy en el Wall Street Journal.  Fuera de los países declarados comunistas pero que han adoptado el neocapitalismo socialista de estado, el único país que tiene mayores impuestos corporativos que los Estados Unidos, son los Emiratos Árabes.

Si leen detenidamente este artículo, quizás en el futuro se preocupen cuando le suban de nuevo los impuestos a las corporaciones.  No hay impuesto que caiga en el suelo, todos nos golpean de una manera o de otra.  El problema es que estos liberales tienen un romance con los impuestos, no hay impuestos que no les guste, y todos tenemos que pagar por ellos.

Obama’s Corporate Exodus

Shhhh. Please don’t mention tax rates when moving to Ireland.

What kind of country does this to itself? With Medtronic‘s MDT -1.10% planned acquisition of Covidien COV +20.45% and the announcement that the combined company will be domiciled in Ireland, U.S. tax policy has encouraged one more business to spend its money overseas. Medtronic, famous for its high-tech cardiac and spinal devices, will pay $42.9 billion for Dublin-based Covidien, which makes surgical tools and other medical supplies.

Medtronic is making a business case for the deal, promising to find at least $850 million in annual cost savings by 2018. Some analysts see a combined company that will have more leverage to defend prices when negotiating with consolidating hospital and physician groups. Medtronic adds that its technology, when combined with Covidien’s overseas manufacturing, research and development assets, will give the combined firm an edge in emerging markets. Such markets also don’t have the 3.8% ObamaCare tax on medical devices.

Perhaps learning from companies that have highlighted the tax benefits of moving offshore only to be ridiculed by the same politicians who created the incentives to move, Medtronic isn’t talking much about taxes as it sells the deal to shareholders. What Medtronic is talking about are the promises it is making to U.S. politicians. The company pledges to continue investing in the U.S.—$10 billion over the next decade. And while its “principal executive offices” will be in Ireland, Medtronic says it will keep its “operational headquarters” in Minneapolis.

Over the last year or so Sen. Carl Levin’s investigations subcommittee has been busy conducting show trials against companies that legally seek to minimize tax bills. So we understand if corporate officials have drawn the lesson that it’s best not to discuss such topics in polite political company.

But shareholders of all companies—including employees who care about where economic growth will occur in the future—should know that America’s federal corporate tax rate is 35%, which when combined with state and local levies rises to an average of nearly 40%. Ireland, where politicians evidently care about economic growth and as far as we know don’t seek to stifle free speech on the topic, has a corporate tax rate of 12.5%.

Almost alone among civilized nations, Washington also demands to be paid on a company’s world-wide earnings, rather than on money earned in the U.S. This tax is due whenever a company’s overseas earnings are returned to America. Medtronic has about $14 billion overseas and rather than bringing it home and triggering the tax, the company will use the money to fund most of the cash portion of its $42.9 billion purchase.

After Monday’s market close, Medtronic spokesman Rob Clark told us via email that “a benefit of the inversion structure is that it provides us access to the cash of Covidien” and its foreign-generated “free cash flow into the future. Being domiciled as an Irish company puts us into a territorial tax system that provides us the most efficient access to our cash meaning that we achieve tremendous balance sheet flexibility to deploy that cash as necessary. In this case, we made it very clear that one use of this cash is to invest in U.S. based technology and innovation in the form of venture investment, acquisitions, R&D.”

It seems that to have the cash to invest in U.S. businesses—as opposed to being forced to invest in the U.S. government—the company needs to move out of the U.S.

Ireland isn’t the only place with a more competitive tax policy. The near-40% U.S. average rate is almost double the 21% average in the European Union, or the 22% in Asia, according to KPMG. As we noted recently, about the only place outside of captive Marxist countries with a higher corporate tax rate than the U.S. is the United Arab Emirates. But its top rate of 55% is generally applied only to foreign oil companies.

A big reason why the U.S. economy isn’t growing as fast as it used to is that politicians not only don’t want economic growth at the top of the agenda. They don’t even want anyone to talk about it.

 

 

As Young Lawyer, Hillary Clinton Defended Child Rapist She Knew Was Guilty

Back when Sen. Ted Cruz was a practicing lawyer, the state of Texas appointed him the defendant for a man by the name of Thomas Alfred Taylor, age 41. Cruz agreed to do it.Taylor had been accused of luring a 12-year-old girl into his car and raping her. Being accused of something does not mean you are guilty, of course. But according to newly discovered audio recordings, Cruz had no doubt in his mind that his client was guilty as sin.Taylor raped that 12-year-old, and Cruz admits he knew it fully when he defended him in court. So his strategy to win the case was to attack the character of the raped child. What you’ve just read is a true story, but I have deliberately changed one of the names in it: Ted Cruz. This really did happen to a lawyer-turned-politician, but it wasn’t the Texas senator.It was Hillary Clinton.

You Won’t Believe the Latest Obama Administration Lie

By Onan Coca/ Now the Obama administration is just mocking us, aren’t they? They have to be playing some kind of silly prank. It’s the only answer to the latest twist in the IRS Scandal saga.

The IRS is under intense scrutiny for apparently bringing its power to bear on innocent conservative citizens, who were targeted for extra IRS scrutiny simply for their political beliefs. For almost a year and a half the Obama administration has been saying, “There is nothing to see here, folks. This is a ‘phony’ scandal.”

Well, this phony scandal is starting to look more like a conspiracy by the government to commit fraud on the American people. (If this was a criminal case – Benghazi, the IRS, and the VA scandals would all come together to show a PATTERN of illegal and malicious behavior by the Obama administration.)

The IRS is now telling Congress, and the special committee investigating the IRS scandal, that they have “lost” years of Lois Lerner’s emails. The emails in question are from the two year period Congress is most interested in understanding what was happening at the IRS.

THEY’VE LOST HER EMAILS.

I know what you’re thinking. “They should’ve called my kids to get a good excuse… or at least a believable one.”

Congress has been asking for these emails for over a year – and now they’re lost? Weird.

Representative Dave Camp (R-MI) who is heading up the IRS investigation had this to say about the news, ”The fact that I am just learning about this, over a year into the investigation, is completely unacceptable and now calls into question the credibility of the IRS’s response to congressional inquiries.” Indeed.

CNN’s John King has the perfect response to the idea that Lois Lerner’s emails could have just “disappeared.”

It is absurd. In the days of our modern technology the idea that a government official as important as Lois Lerner could “lose” two years of emails that just happen to be part of the most important Congressional investigation in years (though the investigations into Benghazi and the VA Scandal may soon rival it) is patently ridiculous. The government has the most advanced data gathering technology the world has ever seen – in fact, shouldn’t the NSA have all of this data on their servers somewhere? (I’m kidding, but they do…)

Former CBS investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson has the questions that Congress should be asking now.

According to the House Ways and Means Committee, the IRS reports having “lost” former IRS manager Lois Lerner’s emails to and from other IRS employees sent between January of 2009 and April of 2011 due to a ‘computer crash.’

In light of the disclosure, these are some of the logical requests that should be made of the IRS:

  • Please provide a timeline of the crash and documentation covering when it was first discovered and by whom; when, how and by whom it was learned that materials were lost; the official documentation reporting the crash and federal data loss; documentation reflecting all attempts to recover the materials; and the remediation records documenting the fix. This material should include the names of all officials and technicians involved, as well as all internal communications about the matter.
  • Please provide all documents and emails that refer to the crash from the time that it happened through the IRS’ disclosure to Congress Friday that it had occurred.
  • Please provide documentation showing the steps taken to recover the material, and the names of all technicians who attempted the recovery.
  • Please explain why redundancies required for federal systems were either not used or were not effective in restoring the lost materials, and provide documentation showing how this shortfall has been remediated.
  • Please provide any documents reflecting an investigation into how the crash resulted in the irretrievable loss of federal data and what factors were found to be responsible for the existence of this situation.
  • I would also ask for those who discovered and reported the crash to testify under oath, as well as any officials who reported the materials as having been irretrievably lost.

(Attkisson has several other important questions (and comments) that are well worth your time to read.)

The Obama Administration has turned our nation into a banana republic – where the government simply reacts to every new problem with whatever solution they find at hand. We no longer have the right to a just and honest representation, and the people that we have elected now act as our betters. The bureaucracy cushions our politicians from the blows of scandal and our watchdog media has instead become a lapdog media.

If justice is not served in these scandals – then “the social contract” that politicians and government supporters love to crow about has been broken. We’ve kept up our end; it’s our government who has broken the contract. Which means we are duty bound to tear down that government and to build a new one.

We want justice in the IRS Scandal. And we want it now. Read more at http://eaglerising.com/6815/wont-believe-latest-obama-administration-lie/#xgDUZQh5byle0PPo.99

 

Rand Paul

To: Lazaro R Gonzalez
Dear Lazaro R,
Did you see my email below?
You see, I just filed my class-action lawsuit against the NSA.
But that’s not the only way to fight unconstitutional spying!
I’ve also introduced the Fourth Amendment Protection Act in Congress to fight this battle on multiple fronts.
Unfortunately, not enough Americans have signed the petition supporting this legislation.
That’s why, if you haven’t already, please sign the petition right away!
And if you’ve already signed, please forward it to as many people as you know.
Without your help, and the help of people like you, we don’t stand a chance.
Thank you for all you’ve done, and continue to do for our Fourth Amendment rights.In Liberty,
Senator Rand Paul

 

Piden renuncia de Funcionarios del Hospital de Veterano de Miami Dade

June 17th, 2014

• Los acusan de no realizar sus funciones y hasta muerte de un veterano por falta de atención

MIAMI 17 DE JUNIO DE 2014, nhr.com—Después del escándalo dentro del Sistema de Salud para Veterano del país y la renuncia del secretario de Asuntos de Veteranos, Eric Shinseki, inmerso en el escándalo por las largas listas de espera en los hospitales de excombatientes y donde se ha  vinculado con la muerte de 40 veteranos que no recibieron tratamiento médico a tiempo, ahora el jefe de gabinete del Director del Hospital de veteranos de Miami, declaró en las últimas horas que no tiene la mas mínima intención de renunciar a su puesto.

En los últimos días se han hecho infinidades de llamamientos por la renuncia de Vincent DeGennaro, después que se revelara que en el 2009 el acordó que nunca practicaría medicina en el estado de Nueva York y haber sido sancionado en el estado de la Florida por presuntamente no proporcionar el cuidado adecuado a uno de sus pacientes que tuvo una muerte horrible y dolorosa.

El Dr. DeGennaro tiene un salario de $320,000 al año y sus funciones es supervisar la atención de los pacientes en el Hospital de Veteranos de Miami-Dade, Broward y Monroe, y sus críticos se quejan que su supervisión es solamente simbólica dentro del Sistema de Salud para Veteranos de Miami Dade, de acuerdo con algunas fuentes.

Recientemente el Senador Marco Rubio pidió la renuncia de DeGennaro señalando que “Creo que todas las novedades que rodea los escándalos sobre el sistema médico para Veteranos, donde sus funcionarios como el de Miami, deben considerar renunciar”, dijo.

Por su parte muchos representantes en Washington se han preguntado ¿Por qué es que alguien como DeGennaro se encuentran en una posición de autoridad en el Hospital de Veteranos de Miami?.

DeGennaro ha respondido a esos ataques, imperturbable y más bien con una actitud desafiante, de acuerdo con fuentes dentro del Hospital de Veteranos en Miami.

Fuentes han dicho que DeGennaro y el Director del Hospital de Veterano de Miami, Paul Russo se reunieron recientemente con el representante demócrata Joe García y con los representantes Mario Díaz Balart e Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

Nelsonhortareporta.com ha tratado de entrevistar a DeGennaro o Russo pero han reusado el encuentro con periodistas.

 

Gov’t Seizes Control of All Your Financial Accounts

Written by Damon Geller

Everyone knows that the United States hasgone bankrupt.  As the U.S. government and the Fed poured trillions of dollars of YOUR money into the banks and markets after the 2008 economic collapse, this unprecedented level of money-printing is catapulting the U.S. debt to $28 trillion by 2018.  But now, the U.S. government and the Fed are completely out of ammo.  They desperately need money to maintain their own power, and taxes are no longer enough.  So in order to keep the Ponzi scheme going, the U.S. government has made several highly controversial moves to be in position to seize control of all your financial accounts.   And it’s becoming clearer by the day, if you want to protect your savings and wealth from government confiscation, you only have ONE choice.

The Bankrupt State

What happens when America goes bankrupt?  The $17 Trillion question?  Let’s be clear, America is already bankrupt.  “Bankrupt” is defined as “any insolvent debtor” – a debtor whose liabilities exceeds its assets.  The U.S. government, by its own admission, is a bankrupt entity.  Not bankrupt “soon,” bankrupt NOW.  To the tune of just OVER $17 trillion.  In an attempt to fabricate the illusion of “growth,” the Fed and their bank-owned politicians poured trillions of dollars of YOUR money into big banks and the markets in order to prop up stocks, bonds and real estate after the 2008 economic collapse.  The idea was to “fix” the economy by pouring 1,000 gallons of high-octane debt-gas on an already ragging debt-fueled bond fire.

Of course, REAL growth never materialized.  Instead, all that these criminals managed to accomplish with their money-printing was to blow up new bubbles, widen the income divide, and dramatically increase the wealth of a select few at the expense of the rest of us.  The tragic result:  the USA’s liabilities now exceed its assets by an amount so astronomical it’s almost incomprehensible.  And by its own admission, that hole will be getting deeper each year until we reach $28 trillion in debt by 2018.  Or until the Ponzi scheme blows up.

What Now?

The questions now are, what happens now that America is already bankrupt?  How do broke governments survive as long as they can?  What are they capable of doing when they know their fate is at hand?  How do the Ponzi masters keep the Ponzi scheme going?

The answer to all these questions may shock you:  The U.S. government has made several highly controversial moves to be in position to seize control of all your financial accounts!  They’re using legislation and authoritarian power in collusion with the modern financial system to gain access to your private assets in the name of “protection”, “security” or “national emergency.” But in reality, your savings & wealth have become a prime target for confiscation.

How can they do this?  Well, the “beauty” of the modern financial system – to a banker or an insolvent government – is the ease at which they can access your wealth with the stroke of a computer or a new law or tax.  When you combine the digital banking & financial system with the overreaching legislative power of an insolvent government, we citizens don’t stand a chance.  Unlike English soldiers breaking into the homes of colonists, today’s government can be far more subversive.  Just take a look at these government regulations & initiatives that are right now in the process of taking effect:

FATCA:  As everyone has heard by now, the July 1st FATCA provision requires foreign financial institutions such as banks, stock brokers, hedge funds, pension funds, insurance companies, and trusts to report all U.S. citizens’ accounts directly to the IRS.  The government can’t put its paws on your money if it doesn’t know where it is.  The more information a government has on the movement, location & size of global citizen wealth, the more efficiently and effectively it can create legislation & systems to control that wealth.  FATCA even requires reporting to the IRS by foreign private companies on any income made by a citizen of the U.S. whether they live here or not.  And FATCA, once implemented, will negatively impact the U.S. dollar, the global economy, and our international relationships.

MyRA:  In the State Of The Union Address – and coincidentally just as soon as the Fed started tapering their endless QE treasury-buying experiments – Obama announced the creation of the MyRA – your retirement money will now be used to pay for U.S. debt. The MyRA is nothing more than an investment scam being sold to the American people as a you-can’t-lose, zero-risk investment by the pitchman-in-chief himself.  The reality is, since the Fed can’t conjure up money from thin air to buy the debt anymore, and our foreign friends don’t want our debt anymore, Obama needs to sell it to John Q. Public.  Since the federal government has done so well at everything from delivering mail to affordable healthcare, what could possibly go wrong with jumping into the investment advisory business?  Where do I sign up?

CARDS:  The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, which oversees how investments are sold, proposed what it calls CARDS – Comprehensive Automated Risk Data System – which is an electronic system that will regularly collect data on balances and transactions in all 4100 brokerage accounts nationwide. CARDS is disguised as a way to “protect” investors, but the system is clearly designed to have detailed information on the structure & location of every citizens’ investments.  Since the government needs us to support its debt (because outside interests no longer do), wouldn’t it be convenient to know and control the structure or every investment portfolio in America?

So for the first time ever, The U.S. government is directing you where to invest your savings & retirement and has gained full access to the activity in every single citizen’s bank accounts, retirement accounts, brokerage accounts and trading accounts.  The IRS will also have full visibility on any oversees accounts, income, equity or other earnings, effectively giving them access to all the wealth of every American citizen no matter where they reside on earth.  So now that we know what they’re doing and why they’re doing it, the question for you is:  what are you doing to safeguard your savings & wealth?

There’s Only One Place to Hide

With our desperate government gaining unprecedented access to your financial accounts everywhere in the world, you need to take action NOW to protect your savings & retirement from possible capital controls.  But if the government has its hands in your bank accounts, retirement accounts and brokerage accounts, is any place safe?

  1.  There’s ONE asset class this sits outside the financial system and is completely secure from government confiscation and global economic collapse:  Gold & Silver.  Gold & Silver have been the best wealth protectors for over 5,000 years and have survived every government & currency collapse in history.  Today, physical gold & silver are selling in record numbers around the world.  Central banks around the world and nations like China are stockpiling gold as a hedge to any possible collapse of all the dollars they hold.

The government has spent way beyond its limits.  And now you know that the government is seizing control of your financial accounts.  So the time is now.  Protect your savings & retirement with physical gold & silver before you have nothing left to protect. (Call 800-226-8106 to receive your free copy of Damon Geller’s popular book, “Rescue Your Money from the National Debt Disaster,” or see below)

 

‘The People vs. Barack Obama’

On Sunday, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) called for a special prosecutor to investigate the mysterious missing emails from former IRS charitable organizations head Lois Lerner between January 2009 and April 2011. The IRS announced that the emails had gone missing on Friday, prompting House Ways and Means Committee chairman Dave Camp to fume, “There needs to be an immediate investigation and forensic audit by Department of Justice as well as the Inspector General.” Cruz went further, tweeting out a call by Ron Fournier of National Journal for a special prosecutor.

The IRS’ activity is surely criminal, under 26 US Code Section 7212 and 5 US Code Section 7323. As I write in my book, The People vs. Barack Obama: The Criminal Case Against The Obama Administration, “the IRS and the Obama administration violated both the Hatch Act and the ‘omnibus’ provision of the Internal Revenue Code.”

But here’s the reality: the DOJ will not investigate, and the Obama administration will never sanction a special prosecutor. In March, Eric Holder denied Cruz’s request for a special prosecutor on the IRS issue. Which means that, as usual, the executive branch is entirely unanswerable for its crimes.

The Obama administration knows that. Which is why the administration has no problem whatsoever abusing its power to grant access to the United States to Mexican gang members. As the Washington Times reported today, “Border Patrol officials are swamped by the number of minors crossing illegally into the United States and frustrated that they can’t turn away known Mexican gang members.”

Obama Released Worst Terrorist Yet

What did we hear for so many years during the Bush administration? Our involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan would create terrorism. Bush’s wars would cause more danger in the world. Well, evidently letting terrorists walk free is far worse than fighting and killing them. The UK Daily Mail reports that, “The United States once had Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams (ISIS) leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi (his friends call him Bag-Daddy…Yo) in custody at a detention facility in Iraq, but president Barack Obama let him go, it was revealed on Friday.” al Baghdadi was among the prisoners released in 2009 from the U.S.’s now-closed Camp Bucca near Umm Qasr in Iraq.
